Came in handy, since it’s hard enough to fix a JDM-030. Thanks!

Just did this on my JDM-030 (3rd generation DS4) as well. I would point out that the charge port for the JDM-030 (JDS-030?) looks slightly different and has more of a T-shape than the JDS-040, but aside from that, the instructions are functionally the same.

I will lastly add that having good tweezers is a must: the tweezers my jeweler’s drivers came with were crap and I had to go to the store to buy another pair. Make sure your equipment is solid before assembly.

Can The JDS 040 work in a controller that uses the JDS 030?

Tried to replace my usb port with a board that reads “1-981-33-31” from amazon. It was listed as JDS-40 and it does not work. In fact when plugged into a usb port on my laptop the ribbon cable gets noticeably hot but the controller will not power on.

Got the same problem. Any idea?
